  • Hi fellow listers, When searching for a link to the East India Company Regiments on St. Helena, I found the link below in the UK National Archives. The web page gives a brief synopsis of the Regiments that arrived on St. Helena, at the beginning and during Bonaparte's exile. The information comes from "A St Helena Who's Who" by Arnold Chaplin. http://yourarchives.nationalarchives...
